I agree with Viking, I'm saying the lap time is correct.

Okay I just marked my own lap time as correct, probably not fair but I am looking at the Car and Driver spec sheet to be sure it is right. This was in a comparison test between the following (with their Willow Springs Lap times):

Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce 1:56.0
Chevrolet Corvette L82 1:45.2
Datsun 280-ZX 1:54.1
Fiat Spider 2000 2:01.7
Mazda RX-7 1:51.4
Porsche 924 1:52.5
